What are your favorite fics?

These are some of them (the list would be too long if I listed all of them) :

Hate Me To The Moon by harrystylesandstuff [ 8/8 | English | 83,616 ]

AU where Harry is a sexy nerd, Louis is a great actor, and they both pretend to hate each other’s guts to convince themselves they’re not feeling things future step-brothers shouldn’t feel.

Supernova by Star55 [ 14/14 | English | 172,426 ]

It’s hard being a teenager. It’s hard being a teenager and at a new school. It’s hard being a teenager, at a new school and also gay. It’s hard being a teenager, at a new school, gay and a mutant. It’s hard being a teenager, at a new school, gay, a mutant and who has no idea that he’s meant to be the world’s next super hero. It seems like Louis has a lot of catching up to do.

Even Angels Have Their Demons by AFangirlFantasy [ 4/4 | English | 50,494 ]

Or, an Angel/Demon AU where Angel Louis hates Demon Harry, but somewhere along the way that stops being so true.

Just A Flower Boy by Larryruinedme [ 15/15 | English | 70,087 ]

Harry Styles is a clumsy, flower crown-wearing, openly gay junior with only two true friends, Niall and Zayn. Louis Tomlinson is the school’s attractive, straight football captain, with a small body and a big personality. As fate will have it, Harry has a huge, unrequited, utterly hopeless crush on Louis. Fate is thrown out the window the day that Harry and Louis find themselves partnered up for a history project. Harry starts to receive notes from a secret admirer, Louis starts to get jealous of Harry’s budding friendship with senior Nick Grimshaw, Zayn and Liam develop a thing for each other, and Niall is the best mate anyone could have asked for. And suddenly, Harry’s crush on Louis doesn’t seem so utterly hopeless anymore.

Flightless Bird by DonnaHaywardsHead [ 35/35 | English | 97,723 ]

AU where Louis Tomlinson is a principal dancer with The Royal Ballet. When his rival from ballet school, moody dance prodigy Harry Styles joins the company, old wounds are reopened and old passions reignited. During the company’s production of Swan Lake the secret that doomed their love is finally revealed, but will it be too late?

Coax The Cold by MediaWhore [ 14/14 | English | 86,160 ]

English Professor Louis Tomlinson’s passion for the occult has been a source of mockery and derision for most of his life. When he hears whispers of a travelling freak show newly established in London claiming the existence of a monstrous sea hybrid, half-man, half-fish, Louis sees it as his ticket to credibility amongst his peers. The summer he spends undercover working on the show, however, gives him much more than that.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did - Happy Reading! :)

Coax the Cold by @mediawhorefics

anonymous asked:

Why do you think libras, geminis, pisces are multifaceted?

Well, to be clear, all of the signs are multi-faceted in an archetypal way. However, in terms of the symbols, Libra, Gemini, Pisces, and Sagittarius also are multi-faceted. Libra has two sides of a scale, Gemini are represented by twins, Pisces are represented by two fishes, and Sagittarius is half man, half horse. These two sides can represent two different sides that are put into a single sign.

Gemini: One side represents knowledge and logic. The other side represents humor and youth. These two sides are both tied by the mind and communication.

Libra: One side represents love and romance. The other side represents justice and fairness. These two sides are both tied by the interactions with other people.

Sagittarius: One side represents knowledge, truth, and beliefs (human.) The other side represents strength, wildness, and adventure (horse.) These two sides are tied by passion.

Pisces: One side represents absolutely knowing everything and having the ability to empathize. The other side represents knowing absolutely nothing due to the grandness of the world. These two sides are tied by imagination.

Louis is a merman and Harry is a boy. The lake is a good place to fall in love. 

Louis wants the boy to wade deeper, deep enough that Louis can go under and wrap his fingers around his ankles for just a moment. Pull him under. Just touch skin, for a second.

louis and liam are a trapeze act who’ve just joined syco circus. despite his best efforts, louis immediately falls head over heels for harry, one of the jugglers with a penchant for glittery pink leotards. but louis’s had issues before with intra-circus dating, so he’s trying his best to ignore his feelings. which is why he’s not at all bothered by harry flirting with everyone but him.

featuring lots of pining, lots of ot5 friendship, runaway boys reconnecting with their families, harry and louis becoming co-dependent best friends until they figure out they’re in love with each other, liam fancying zayn who’s already dating perrie, and a beatles-themed circus.

Mythological Throwback Thursday: Mermaids and Mermen

It’s time for a special Mythological Throwback Thursday! In honour of Mermay, we’re looking into the depths of mermaid and merman lore. Let’s dive in!

Mermaids are one of the oldest mythological creatures around. Many parts of the ancient world, during various periods, worshipped a goddess known as Atargatis, or Derceto. Originating in Syria, she was a goddess of fertility, a protector of her people, and was often depicted with a fishtail instead of legs. In one origin tale, she is said to have become pregnant by a handsome shepherd boy, Caystrus. Rather than give birth, she tried to drown herself and instead morphed into a half-fish, half-woman.

In ancient Mesopotamia there was also a god known as Oannes, who was depicted as a fish with human feet and also a human head alongside its piscine one. During the day, he would surface in the Persian Gulf and come to shore, instructing those he met in writing, the arts, and the sciences. Smart fish.

Of course, we couldn’t go without mentioning Triton, the Greek god, messenger of the sea and son of Poseidon. A classic merman, he wielded a trident and also possessed a magical conch shell which could control the waves. Triton sired an entire race of merfolk, also called tritons. They had similar powers to their father, but looked rather less human, with gills and broad mouths filled with sharp teeth.

While mermaids are near-universally regarded as highly feminine and attractive, the same cannot be said for their male counterparts. In many parts of the world, mermen were thought of as ugly creatures. In Ireland for example, where merfolk were called merrow, the males were described as having green hair and teeth, both scaly legs and a tail, and stubby arms like fins. As with all merrow, the males had peculiar hats that they needed to wear to be able to live beneath the waves. One type of mermen in Finnish mythology, vetehinen, were helpful, green-bearded fellows with skill in medicine and lifting curses. However, there are also Näkki, which are handsome from the front but hairy and unpleasant from behind. Finnish parents would tell their children that Näkki lay in wait in reflective water, to reach up, drag down and drown inquisitive or vain boys and girls. Creepy.

The image of a man-fish hybrid has also appeared in Polynesian mythology. Avatea, a god of the Cook Islands, is a half-man, half-fish lunar god. Unlike the other merfolk, however, Avatea was split vertically, with his right half being a man and the left being a fish. What a twist!

It seems that wherever humans depended on the ocean, they personified its fickle nature. Perhaps this is the reason for the dualistic personalities sometimes depicted: mermaids good, mermen bad.

Do you have an mermaid au's ?

Hello! Hope you enjoy:

Drowning In Your Eyes by smittenwithlouis:

Summary: “Capt’n Styles, are you certain of this? They be attracted to man-made light.”

“What is? Sharks?” The young blonde asks in terror. 

“Worse than sharks, lad. There’ll be flesh eating mermaids upon us in minutes, mark my words!” Paul huffs as he continues to wave the bright lantern in front of him, “And Captain Styles here, has us bait!”

Or: The Pirates of the Caribbean inspired au where Harry is a fierce pirate who holds the heart of a beautiful merman.

I Know All Your Colors by someonethatsfunny:

Summary: The one where Louis is a mermaid and Harry meets him as a five year old boy. What happens when you meet a merboy at the tender age of five, but no one believes you? Will you listen to your parents and other adults who all tell you that you’ve imagined him or will you hold onto the memory of him for a lifetime, never willing to let him go? What if you can’t let him go because you’re pretty sure you were destined to meet and to be a part of one another’s lives? Maybe it’s down to fate.

To Embroider Your Waist With Corals by smittenwithlouis:

Summary: The first thing he notices is the light cyan wings and the humanoid body with bird like feet, clearly a harpy, a child one at that. Harry thinks the best thing to do is to grab him and pull him above water as quickly as possible, so air can make it into its struggling lungs. That was his plan, until he made eye contact with it for a split second and that’s all it took for a flood of emotions to hit him like a sailfish.

Or: All harpy Louis has known is the sky, all merprince Harry has known is the sea, except when they’re together.

Poor, Unfortunate Soul by UpAllNight:

Summary: Louis, drunk and confused, falls off the side of the cruise ship. Harry, who had been following some dolphins who had been following the cruise ship, rescues him and takes him to a small island until help arrives (as it always does, because Louis is not the first drunk to fall off a boat). But until then, it’s just Harry and Louis.

Oh, and Harry is a very handsome, shy merman. Who might have a thing for humans. And Louis, apparently, has a thing for mermen.

Purer Than The Water (like we were) by FeelsForBreakfast:

Summary: Louis is a merman and Harry is a boy. The lake is a good place to fall in love.

“Louis wants the boy to wade deeper, deep enough that Louis can go under and wrap his fingers around his ankles for just a moment. Pull him under. Just touch skin, for a second.”

with your love we could breathe underwater by luminescents:

Summary: Harry’s brow furrows, a look of confusion spreading over his face. “But I am real. I exist, see,” he says, raising a hand out of the water and wiggling his fingers at Louis.

Louis finds himself relaxing a bit. Harry seems harmless really. And he’s quite cute, for something that’s not supposed to exist. If Louis is indeed having a hallucination right now, at least it’s a cute one.

AU where Harry is a mermaid, Louis is a human, and they both discover a lot more than they anticipated.

seaside improvisation by tinyweirdloves:

Summary: “I’m not from here,” Harry says. He’s silent for the space of a breath. “I’m from… I’m from under.” He stares right at Louis like he’s willing him to understand. Louis looks back at him, confused. A tiny crease forms between Harry’s eyebrows. “Under,” he repeats stubbornly, and Louis’s struck by how young he looks in that moment.

“Under where?” he says, and Harry looks at him like he can’t figure him out.

“The water,” Harry says, like it should be obvious. “The sea.”

[harry is a mermaid who has lost his tail and he lives in louis’s bathtub for a month.]

my head’s under water (but I’m breathing fine) by infinitelymint:

Summary: Harry’s a merman, Louis is a prince. Sometimes happiness can be found at the bottom of the sea.

chances under the purple sunrise by loupancake:

Summary: “You’ve been taking my shoes?” Louis asked, scoffing. “I paid a lot for them!”

“How unfortunate for you.” Harry smiled bitterly. He peeked over Louis, eyeing the hook that still had the worm.

The red box was open right next to him. Harry saw that inside, it had a couple of transparent containers that were filled with worms, too. He eyed Louis skeptically before nodding. “Right. I’ll give you your, er…. little boats back if you let me have the tub of worms.”

A groan crawled out from Louis, his head falling back and his eyes landing up at the clear sky. “I need those.”

“They’re food for myself and others, not to be used as bait.”

Or the one where Harry is a merman, prince of the Atlantic Ocean, whose curiosity and healthy envy takes over him and he steals Louis’ shoes every time he fishes.Series

All because of a Bet

@queenkubdel @thecrazydragonlady @instantwaffles You asked for the Mermaid! Kimax AU, and here you go.


This was not possible.

It was scientifically, anatomically impossible.

Max pinched himself in the arm just to see if he wasn’t dreaming or having a weird ocean-induced hallucination.

Nope.

The other boy was still there, lying unconscious on his stomach, at the shore, right next to him along with all the wood rubble from the boat.

Taking a deep breath as he stood up with shaking legs, Max blinked several times to confirm that, indeed, there was still a half man, half fish in front of him.

(And a very handsome one, too)

Love Endless (The Road to Recollection) by wubwubnparmaham:

Summary: The year is groovy 1973, and eighteen-year-old Louis Tomlinson is perhaps the gayest teen to ever grace the gloomy, hateful town of Fortwright. Would be fine if he wasn’t so viciously bullied at both home and school for such a “harmful” sexual preference.

Yeah, yeah, we’ve all heard this story, haven’t we?

Believe him, Louis didn’t think he was anything special either.

Until he found the mansion. The notoriously haunted mansion hidden deep within the forests of his tiny blip of a town in Bumfuck Nowhere, Idaho. No one with a brain ever goes near it, but Louis could use a little excitement in his life…and possibly a Band-Aid or two.

After discovering the mansion was less abandoned than he’d thought, he’s now left with the most riveting mystery of a lifetime; every new finding leaving him with more questions. Who is this elusive owner, and why won’t they show themselves? Why is there a set of journals in the same handwriting that span over centuries? Why in the world is there a padlock on the refrigerator…and who the hell is Alexander?

For the Sake of Propriety by panda_bear21:

Summary: Louis Tomlinson is the caretaker of an estate that is not truly his, and when his Uncle calls upon him to take it back, Louis knows he will soon be out on the streets with four overly zealous sisters to care for. His only solution: wed the eldest two off and pray for the best. When an even better solution unexpectedly presents itself in the form of the charming Mr. Styles, Louis is faced with a difficult choice. But as with all things in the regency era, reputation very well may threaten to outweigh the fleeting matters of his heart.

Word count: 52,360

Such Good Luck by casuallyhl:

Summary: Louis smiles at Harry’s words, leaning into his touch. “Tell me again.”

Smiling, Harry takes Louis into his arms. Pressing gentle kisses to his face, Harry murmurs, “In six months’ time, I will have my twenty-fifth birthday. On that day, my portion of the inheritance will become legally mine. And I plan that very day to announce to my family that I have found love.” Harry chuckles as he runs his lips lightly along Louis’ cheekbone. “That, in fact, I found love when I was twenty-one years old, and that I have loved and been loved every day since.”

Or, an Edwardian AU where Harry is a young aristocratic lord and Louis is a working class dairy farmer. Secrets are a necessary part of their relationship, but Louis has one that could topple their whole world.

Felt the blood rushing through my veins, I still remember by Samcgrath:

Summary: Harry is the heir to his father’s estate and wealth and he knows he is the most eligible bachelor in all of England.

They can’t stand each other, and the pride of one and the prejudice of the other disallows any other feelings they might have.

salt water kisses

The sea air didn’t taste like freedom to Anders. Mostly, it tasted of salt and smelled of fish and made his eyes sting when the ocean water was thrown up over the bow into his face. Still, it was better than the stale air that smelled of old vomit and unemptied chamber pots down in the hold. And it was infinitely better than what he was running from. He knew he was hundreds of miles from the dank cell in the bottom of Kinloch, but he still felt that same sense of desperation from being alone and trapped when he went below deck.

So ocean side Anders stayed, with the wind whipping through his hair and the salt stinging his eyes. The crew didn’t pay him much mind, as long as he scurried out of the way quick enough. He propped his elbows on the railing and stared out at the sea. It was so wide and open, it had been days since they’d seen land, but he knew somewhere across the horizon was Rivain. It would be the farthest he had ever ran, maybe when there was an ocean between him and the templars he would finally be free.

Merleomon

Merleomon [マーレオモン]
Name origin: A ‘Mermaid’ is a half-man, half-fish mythological creature. ‘Leo’ is Latin for lion.
Level: Perfect
Attribute: Data
Family: Deep Savers
Type: Aquatic Beast Man

Description

A fearless Digimon often referred to as the ‘Sergeant of the Sea’. It exudes a charismatic air, and its powerful roar is enough to intimidate any enemy. It spends its entire time underwater, only having to surface every half a day to breathe, as it fights best underwater; it can swim at great speed despite its bulk, but its fighting ability is severely hampered on land as it cannot move well. However, it can call upon waves to carry it as long as a body of water is nearby. Unlike its previous forms, it is mostly solitary but it still has a cooperative personality, and its roar has the power to rally support from nearby Digimon.

Attacks

  • Admiral Edge (アドミラルエッジ): Slashes and thrusts at the opponent with the daggers on its fists. They can be removed and thrown as well, and summoned back as long as they are not destroyed.
  • Glacier Impact  (グレイシャーインパクト): Lets out a huge roar, causing a cross to appear in the ground or area in front of it, from which a blast of cold energy erupts.
  • Kairyuuha (海流破/Japanese: Ocean Current Destruction): Calls upon ocean currents and directs them to rush towards the opponent.

anonymous asked:

Can you make a fic rec where Harry is the one who fuck up? Please? I haven't read many fics (I joined the fandom in September) but the ones I did its mostly Louis doing something wrong, and that doesn't sit well with me, I feel like that's why I haven't read many fics here yet. Do you know some good ones? One fic I liked a lot was Into The Blue so something like that should be fine.

how about we try something else, is that okay? because it’s totally understandable to get tired of fics where louis fucks up, just like it’s totally understandable to get tired of fics where harry fucks up. some of my favorite fics are the ones where the drama isn’t in the relationship, it’s the situation or other characters or something where it can be harry and louis vs. the world, so i’ll give you some of those and we’ll see if you prefer that! 

non-relationship drama fics: 

Here in the Afterglow
“If you hadn’t noticed, I don’t have many friends,” Louis whispers, the blossom of insecurity in his stomach unfurling and clawing its way into his throat.

Harry is silent for a long time, and then he speaks; a soft, slow uncurl that makes Louis’ stomach shake. “I’ll be your friend.”

1970’s AU. In a tiny town in Idaho, Louis’ life is changed forever by the arrival of a curious stranger.

Cameras Flashing
With his breakout single platinum three times over and his second album still selling out in stores around the world, Louis Tomlinson has made it to the top. However, his position as Pop Heartthrob of the Decade is threatened by the edgier, more artistic Zayn, who happens to be releasing an album a week after Louis’ upcoming third. Louis needs something groundbreaking- scandalous, even- to push past him in the charts. Much to Louis’ dismay, his PR team calls in The Sexpert.

Consulting with PR firm Shady, Lane and Associates pays the bills so that Harry Styles can spend his down time doing what he really loves: poring over data. On weekends and late into the evenings, he researches gender, presentation, and sexual orientation, analysing the longitudinal study that is his father’s life’s work. That is, until his newest client, the popstar with the fascinating secret, drags him off his couch and frighteningly close to the spotlight.

As the album’s release date approaches, will Tomlinson and Styles be able to pull off the most risky PR scheme of the millennium and beat Zayn in sales or will the heat of their feelings for each other compromise everything?

the impossible now
A wish on Christmas Eve sends Louis to an alternate dimension where Harry is a member of One Direction.

They Never Quite Leave
When Liam Payne inherited his great aunt’s mansion, he never expected it to be haunted. With the help of famous ghost hunters Harry and Niall, Liam is hoping to evict the ghost and sell the house once and for all.

There’s just one problem: Louis has been in that house for a hundred years, and he doesn’t much feel like leaving.

I No Longer Feel I Have to be James Dean
The tale of how Harry married Louis, the bartender that’s nursing his sorrows, three days after getting dumped by his fiance.

Run Like the Devil
Harry stops pouting, but his frown is still fixed in place. “Are you sure?” he asks. “You know it’s your soul you’re signing away.” He sounds…sad? No, that’s not right, but there’s something.

Christ. This is the most incompetent demon Louis’ ever met. If he hadn’t seen the red of his eyes he wouldn’t believe he was a demon at all. How’d he get this job if he isn’t trying to convince Louis to deal? Or is it just another trick? A ploy for sympathy?

“I’m sure,” Louis says. “Come over here and kiss me.”

*Supernatural AU. Louis hunts demons; Harry’s the strangest demon he’s ever met, and he keeps fucking meeting him.

break open the sky
Being a werewolf isn’t always easy. Especially if you have no idea what you’re doing.

Long Before We Both Thought the Same Thing
“So are you admitting you love Harry yet?”

Louis pauses in the middle of his story about the movie he and Harry went to see last night to raise an incredulous eyebrow. “What are you on about? Of course I love Harry.”

Has Zayn lost his mind? He’s been friends with Louis for nearly seven years and Harry for six, under what circumstances did it appear like they didn’t love each other?

“Okay, let me rephrase,” Zayn says, an amused little quirk to his mouth like he knows something Louis doesn’t. “Are you admitting you’re in love with Harry yet?”

Louis stares at him in bewilderment, mouth working as he tries to form a response. “I…what?”

Or, Louis maybe, sort of realises he’s in love with his best friend of almost twenty years and he maybe, sort of thinks that said best friend could love him back? A prequel to If You Asked Me If You Love Him (I’d Lie).

“I’m glad you like my clothes,” Harry whispers, sliding his arms further along the couch until he’s speaking directly into Louis’ ear. “Would you like me to take them off?”

or: strip club AU. Harry’s work and family are keeping him busy. He really isn’t looking for a relationship, doesn’t want one. He just wants Louis. Problem is, Louis has other plans.

domestic monsters series
Harry is a witch from a long line of power, an ancient line that’s one of the strongest left alive in their hemisphere. He can cast spells without a word if need be, fly on a broomstick, and has a black cat (a kitten, really) named Felix that is his animal familiar. He can shape galaxies in his cupped hands and can destroy them just as easily. He can choose exactly how to use his power, for encouragement and support, or for more nefarious causes if he wishes to.

And as fate would have it, he’s scared of haunted houses.

(Harry is a witch who carries around a stuffed pumpkin, Louis is a vampire with too much time on his hands, and their best mates Zayn & Niall aren’t exactly what they seem…)

I would name the stars for you (I would take you there)
“Harry Styles is a poem waiting to happen, Louis thinks, eyes tracing peach flesh and the undercurrent of blue veins. He wants to write him all down, to capture the image of green eyes and red lips and skinny wrists… dark ink spilled across the page.”

Or a vaguely Notting Hill-like AU (or that made for TV Disney movie Starstruck if you’ve seen it… no? Just me?) starring popstar!Harry and bookkeeper/soulful poet!Louis; and including guest appearances by Fate, a wise elderly aristocrat, and lots and lots of pining.

Two Hearts Drawn Together
Louis Tomlinson is 1/3 of a world-famous boy band. Harry Styles is a deaf university student. When they meet each other at a book signing, they experience an instant connection. They soon discover, however, that bridging the divide of their differences is easier said than done.

We Made These Memories For Ourselves
Breath held, Harry squints his eyes open and focuses on the first stick. A blue line. Harry breathes out an unsteady breath. He’s pretty sure he read that one blue line is a negative, but he fishes the box from the bottom of the pile just to make sure.

“Negative,” he confirms, voice echoing around the small room. “Next.”

Now that he’s feeling a little less shaky, he scans the rest of the tests at once, is met with a headache-inducing mixture of pink plus signs and blue double lines. His heart rate picks up until it’s pounding triple-time in the base of his throat and the pit of his stomach, thundering in his ears and throbbing in his temples. He flips over the rest of the boxes slowly, but he knows what they’re going to say before he even looks.

[or, Louis is a footballer, Harry owns a bakery, and they’re having a baby.]

Fugue
Harry falls asleep a 17 year-old who lives in Cheshire and is probably rockstar Louis Tomlinson’s biggest fan. He wakes up 24 with a wedding ring on his finger, two kids, and Louis Tomlinson attempting to wake him up with a blow job. The doctor calls it organic retrograde amnesia, says he might never get back the last seven years of his life. The only thing that feels the same is how he feels when Louis touches him, and maybe that’s enough to make him fall in love all over again.

The Dead of July
Being an Avenger means continuing to be Captain America and smiling and being honorable for the public and Harry does his best. But it doesn’t give him time to figure out who he is supposed to be once he takes off his uniform and puts the shield to the side. Just being Harry had always involved Louis, and Harry fears he doesn’t know how to exist without him.

or: Harry is Captain America, and Louis’ been dead for 70 years.

Hold Me Closer
Louis Tomlinson is one of the most promising dancers of the English National Ballet, on track to become the youngest principal dancer in the company’s history. That is, until forces conspire to significantly complicate his life, including: a surprise ballet, an unfairly attractive guest choreographer, and being pushed into a rivalry with his best mate. Featuring lots of wine, dancing, pining, and a happy ending.

Celebrity Discount
Louis fell for Prince Harry when he was ten and Harry was eight and peeked behind the Queen’s elegant gown for his first public appearance—a shy smile and a mess of curls. He fell for him when he caught Lottie putting up a magazine cover of Harry on her wall and all she had to say for herself was, “He’s such a good person, yeah?” and, yeah. He fell for him when Harry gracefully accepted his demotion. He fell for him when Harry came out and stayed out.

Helloooo babe ❤ ❤ have you any personal favorites fics set in XIX? I'm fine with whatever written in that style? I don't know if i'm explaining myself correctly but I hope you could understand (something like Liberté maybe?) and they could be pirates, princes/nobles, whatever you can find! Thank you love ❤ :)

Heya !

I don’t read a lot of historical fics, and even less for the 19th century tbh … so my list is short sorry !

- For the Sake of Propriety  : Louis Tomlinson is the caretaker of an estate that is not truly his, and when his Uncle calls upon him to take it back, Louis knows he will soon be out on the streets with four overly zealous sisters to care for.  His only solution: wed the eldest two off and pray for the best. When an even better solution unexpectedly presents itself in the form of the charming Mr. Styles, Louis is faced with a difficult choice.  But as with all things in the regency era, reputation very well may threaten to outweigh the fleeting matters of his heart.

- Coax the Cold   : English Professor Louis Tomlinson’s passion for the occult has been a source of mockery and derision for most of his life. When he hears whispers of a travelling freak show newly established in London claiming the existence of a monstrous sea hybrid, half-man, half-fish, Louis sees it as his ticket to credibility amongst his peers. The summer he spends undercover working on the show, however, gives him much more than that. (86k)
